Sometimes I can tolerate her but for the most part I think she's a mystery talent whose singing career never should have left the showeroom.

As far as her looks go I think you need glasses, friend.

I think she was quite beautiful in the 70's. She was really hot! I mean, Weir had an affair with her in the late 70's.

When I first started seeing the band in 1977, Donna was an integral and very enjoyable part of the sound, I always felt she got a bum rap. For the most part I felt she was a fine addition to the sound and was a very competant singer. As stated previously, she was actually the one who brought Keith into the band. To me she added a very nice, feminine energy to the mostly male energy of the band and scene. I love the harmonies on LLR in particular and she was an asset to many other songs as well.

I don't get how her looks have anything to do with the sound, and the discussion about her appearance just seems like juvenile, high school locker room postering to me. While she was no Miss America, she reflected what a lot of Deadhead chicks looked like and that was not bad. If beauty had anything to do with talent, we would have never had Janis.

Purple Gel,

"If beauty had anything to do with talent, we would have never had Janis."

I love Janis, and I say that with the sweetest, most heartfelt voice I have. Have you checked out 'Festival Express'? This is a fine documentary set in 1970. It is based on the tour of multiple bands, including the Grateful Dead, through Canada. There are some endearing moments between Janis and Jerry in this film. To me, it was touching to see a different, toned down side of Janis. Not the drunk that folks always seem to equate her with. ~ Peace

Her looks have nothing to do with her talent, but I see nothing wrong with commenting on her looks.
